At first, the Kremlin maintained intrigue over the arrival of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Vladivostok. But he still issued a message about the boss’s invitation:

“President of State Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Kim Jong-un will pay an official visit to the Russian Federation in the coming days.”

The DPRK leader will travel to Vladivostok on his famous armored train. Comrade Kim’s father and grandfather were afraid of flying. Either the current ruler also suffers from aerophobia or travels by train according to tradition.

Here’s what we know about the armored squadron:

*A train can have from 7 to 21 cars. In China it accelerates to 80 km/h, but on North Korean roads it does not exceed 50 km/h. Due to the heavy armor, it is impossible to accelerate faster.

* Even though the entire train is called an armored train, only two cars have really heavy protection: the service car and the residential car.

* The delegation usually travels in three trains. The first is a safety train that controls the rails, the second, with a delay of 20 minutes to an hour, is the train with Comrade Kim himself, the third is the train with all the companions.

* The main train carrying the DPRK leader has a carriage with a conference room equipped with wooden and leather chairs. In a separate carriage there are carriages for satellite communications, relaxation (with your favorite karaoke), restaurant and kitchen.

* Stalin gave the first armored train to the grandfather of the current head of the DPRK, Kim Il Sung. According to official data, the North Korean politician traveled 368 thousand kilometers.

* An armored Mercedes-Maybach S600 Guard limousine is located in a detached garage.

Four years ago, Comrade Kim’s arrival at the Vladivostok station was broadcast live. The companions were caught on camera cleaning the exterior handrails and doors of the carriage with the DPRK leader as they walked. The attendants carried steps for the politician and made sure that the train stopped exactly in front of the previously laid carpet.
